Recently, the New York Times featured a bubble chart of the proposed budget for 2013 by Shan Carter . It features some nice, organic, animations, and smooth transitions that add a lot of visual appeal to the graphic. This was all done using D3.js .

The proverb "A picture is worth 1000 words" is one you have probably heard more than once. Dashboards for Graphite - Dashboard Dude It’s no secret I like Graphite - it’s a great example of Open Source software which is just as good (actually, it’s even better) than similar closed-source, enterprise-grade (and much more expensive) software. While Graphite is fantastic, the front-end that comes with it leaves a little bit to be desired. You can use the built-in rendering and dashboard for viewing your system metrics, just like you can use Internet Explorer 6 to browse the Internet - it’ll work, but you’re gonna have a bad time. Thankfully, there are a lot of alternatives out there, but the Graphite Tools page is a little out of date (with abandoned/incomplete projects), so here’s a list or dashboards I have or would consider using… Client-side Dashboards

That’s what you’re actually doing with D3: adding elements to a document, removing them, updating them, etc. CSV · mbostock/d3 Wiki · GitHub Wiki ▸ API Reference ▸ CSV D3 provides built-in support for parsing comma-separated values, tab-separated values and arbitrary delimiter-separated values. These tabular formats are popular with spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel. Tabular formats are often more space-efficient than JSON, which can improve loading times for large datasets. # d3.csv(url[, accessor][, callback])

How to Make Choropleth Maps in D3 Even if you think you don’t know what a choropleth map is, chances are you’ve seen one. And come November 2012, you’ll see plenty: one iconic example of a choropleth map is a map of the United States, laid out in red and blue, showing the results of a presidential election. Choropleth maps can be simple, like in the example above, where the color of the state indicates whether the state goes in one direction (Democrat) or the other (Republican). Architecture and Planning I have not been shy in my love of MongoDB. The honeymoon is not over. Now I want to graph and visualize my data from MongoDB.
